Talk with Sir Terry Farrell: Creating a better Westminster for pedestrians
Westminster contains some of the UK’s most iconic streets and public spaces. It also suffers from some of the UK’s worst congestion and highest pedestrian casualty statistics.
On Tuesday, 12 March 2013, Living Streets is partnering with Movement for Liveable London to discuss what can be done to make Westminster a better place for pedestrians and launch our new Westminster Living Streets Group.
We’ll be joined by Living Streets CEO Tony Armstrong, Cllr Ed Argar of Westminster council, and our keynote speaker, architect Sir Terry Farrell.
Sir Terry is one of the world’s foremost urban planners and architects, who will be sharing his vision for a more people friendly Westminster.
During 40 years in practice, he has transformed London’s skyline and animated the banks of the Thames with his Charing Cross and MI6 headquarters buildings.
It is, though, through his long-term involvement in the region’s urban planning – through specific projects, as well as through advocacy and initiating public debate – that Sir Terry has made his greatest contribution. He is currently the government champion for the planning of the Thames Gateway and advises the Mayor of London on his Design Advisory Committee.
